RESTLESS ROAD’S DEBUT ALBUM LAST RODEO IS OUT NOW

RESTLESS ROAD’S DEBUT ALBUM LAST RODEO IS OUT NOW

LISTEN HERE

Album Release Party Tonight at PBR Cowboy Bar At Nashville Live! – 9:00 PM

Today, buzzworthy trio Restless Road released their debut album, Last Rodeo. Listen here.

Made up of Colton Pack, Garrett Nichols, and Zach Beeken, Restless Road’s standout harmony-driven vocals and “hard-hitting storytelling” (Country Now) are front and center on Last Rodeo. The project features 18 tracks including the title track, which Country Central called “undeniably catchy,” and recently released songs “You Don’t Have To Love Me,” “Roll Tide Roll,” “I Don’t Wanna Be That Guy,” “Sundown Somewhere,” “On My Way,” their #1 Sirius XM hit “Growing Old With You” and fan favorite “Bar Friends.”   

In celebration of the release, the guys will be hosting an album release party tonight at 9:00 PM at the PBR Cowboy Bar at Nashville Live! for those 21+ presented by Coors Light.  Those that can’t make it to the party, have the chance to watch it via livestream at Volume.com.  Fans will have the option of donating during the livestream with a portion of the proceeds benefitting The CMA Foundation.

Last Rodeo is a melting pot of who we are. It’s a blend of harmonies, sounds, and our own stories,” the trio shared. “We’ve been a band for a while now so there’s a lot we’ve been through together – lots of ups and downs. We’re so proud of every song on this project and feel like it really captures who we are. The message we hope people take away from Last Rodeo is to never give up and always keep your eyes on the road.”

Contrary to the title of the album, Last Rodeo is just the beginning for the group. The title track is about resilience and staying focused on their goals, which this album is proof of. As Colton, Garrett and Zach have grown together, Last Rodeo encapsulates their journey through every twist and turn. With Colton married, Garrett currently engaged, and Zach single, the songs incorporate a wide breadth of stories about all different stages of life and love.

With appearances this year in the UK with Kane Brown, at Stagecoach and CMA Fest, the “Spotify Hot Country Artist To Watch” will spend the rest of the year touring alongside Russell Dickerson. For tickets and additional info, visit www.restlessroad.com.

BMI’S CHRIS YOUNG AND MITCHELL TENPENNY CELEBRATE GOLD-CERTIFIED,CHART-TOPPING COLLABORATION,“AT THE END OF A BAR”

BMI’S CHRIS YOUNG AND MITCHELL TENPENNY CELEBRATE GOLD-CERTIFIED,CHART-TOPPING COLLABORATION,“AT THE END OF A BAR”

Multi-platinum, global entertainer Chris Young (RCA Nashville/Sony Music Nashville) and platinum selling artist Mitchell Tenpenny (Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville) spent yesterday with industry friends and family celebrating their “booming duet” (Tennessean), the 2022 chart-topping single, “At The End Of A Bar.” Hosted by BMI and ASCAP, the pair were also surprised with a plaque commemorating its R.I.A.A. Gold certification. Sponsored by Studio Bank, the evening highlights included a donation presentation made by Ron Cox on behalf of Young, Tenpenny and the songwriters in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a pediatric hospital located in Memphis, Tennessee, that supports research initiatives and provides healthcare support for children in need.
 
“At The End Of A Bar” hit No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts the week of August 22, 2022 and is found on Young’s Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition). The song marks Young’s 13th career No.1 single as an artist and his 11th No. 1 as a songwriter and is included among Tenpenny’s three No. 1 singles as an artist and songwriter. Young (BMI), Tenpenny (BMI) and Chris DeStefano (ASCAP) wrote “At The End Of A Bar” in February 2021 during a Nashville snowstorm when most of the city was shut down and the three returned to Loser’s Nashville, the location that inspired their writing session, for yesterday’s winning celebration.
 
Young’s recently released “Young Love & Saturday Nights” is rising on the country radio airplay and streaming charts and will be found on his new album expected in 2024. Tenpenny’s “We Got History” single is inside the Top 20 and climbing.

NATE SMITH ANNOUNCES HEADLINING WORLD ON FIRE TOUR 2024

NATE SMITH ANNOUNCES HEADLINING WORLD ON FIRE TOUR 2024

KICKS OFF THE 21-CITY TOUR AT THE TOP OF NEXT YEAR

“WORLD ON FIRE” REACHES TOP 20 AT COUNTRY RADIO

Breakout country star Nate Smith is set to bring his fiery vocals to 21 cities at the top of next year with his WORLD ON FIRE TOUR 2024. Rising singer-songwriter Dylan Schneider will join Smith on his cross-country trek for the first 20 dates, and Aidan Canfield will open the final show of the tour. Tickets for most shows go on sale Friday, Oct. 20 at 10am local time. Smith’s fan club presale will begin Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 10am local time. Fans can also purchase VIP Packages, which may include premium tickets, Meet & Greet and photo opportunities with Smith, autographed posters and more. Visit NateSmithOfficial.com for tickets and additional info.

Smith spent the summer touring with Thomas Rhett and will hit the road this fall with Cole Swindell. Following his headline tour next year, Smith will join Morgan Wallen for his ONE NIGHT AT A TIME 2024 tour. He will open for Wallen in stadiums across the country, including stops in Arlington (TX), Charlotte, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Nashville, Oxford (MS) and Tampa. Smith will also return to Stagecoach next year after his debut appearance at the festival this year.

Following his Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 hit “Whiskey On You,” Smith’s current single “World On Fire” has reached Top 20 at country radio. With over 80 million global streams to date, the breakup hit is one of 26 tracks on Smith’s self-titled album / deluxe version released on April 28. Upon its release, the project achieved the largest album debut from a new artist this year (2023), as well as the largest full length album debut from a new artist since 2020. The album hit #6 on Billboard’s Country albums chart and #30 overall on the Billboard Top 200. Nate Smith also includes RIAA Gold-certified hits “Wreckage” and “Under My Skin.”

Press raved about the album, with The Tennessean sharing that it “lends itself well to country’s radio-ready expectations, but also is so well-delivered that it explodes them, too… Smith’s vocal is a flexible instrument that is so genuinely powerful that, aided by intentional musicianship, it achieves songs that feel familiar in a heart-warming and instantly connective manner.” Billboard lauded his “formidable, rangy and raw vocal power” while Holler noted that his range bears “resemblance to country legend Vince Gill, whose vocal control could cause fainting spells three states over,” adding that “this is Smith’s superpower.”

Smith, who is known for his “strong voice that grips a lyric with ferocity” (Billboard), was nominated for NEW MALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR at the 58th ACM Awards in addition to his 2023 CMT Awards nomination for BREAKTHROUGH MALE VIDEO OF THE YEAR for his smash single “Whiskey On You.”

About Nate Smith:

Featuring a mix of gritty backwoods soul, rock ‘n’ roll swagger and velvet-thunder vocals, Nate Smith’s personal journey inspired him to be a beacon of country-music hope, an inspirational mission he puts front-and-center. A California native, former worship leader, and lifelong music lover, Smith approaches that mission with a background as eclectic as it gets. Learning guitar at 13, Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Bob Seger were among those informing his powerful, fire-from-within vocals, while Michael Jackson made him crave the spotlight and Nirvana gave his sound a jagged edge. In 2018, Smith lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire which tore through Paradise, California, now known as the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music, hoping that it would help comfort himself and others. Help it did, inspiring a month-long road trip across the U.S. to Music City, writing music and playing dive bars along the way.

Since making it to Nashville, the singer’s “powerhouse tenor” has become “perhaps country music’s fastest-rising beloved voice” (The Tennessean). He’s made a huge splash with songs such as his Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 hit “Whiskey On You,” which was lauded as the “breakup song of the summer” by Country Now and “an enormously satisfying country kiss-off anthem” by Stereogum. “Whiskey On You” amassed over 7.5 million total global on-demand streams in its first week, reaching No. 10 on the Country On-Demand Streaming Chart. The smash hit has racked up over 380 million total global on-demand streams to date. Nate released his debut, self-titled album along with the deluxe version on April 28. The hefty 26-song project hit #6 on Billboard’s Country album charts and #30 on the Billboard Top 200. His latest single off the album, “World On Fire,” is impacting country radio now. The CMT Awards and ACM Awards nominee is currently on tour with Thomas Rhett and will hit the road with Cole Swindell this fall. Nate is managed by Kevin “Chief” Zaruk and Simon Tikhman with The Core Entertainment.

Since then, Schneider has made a name for himself in the Country music community, forging a sound that merges modern pop sensibilities with a down-home feel. He’s been named a “Breakthrough Artist to Watch” by Amazon Music, an “Artist to Watch” by Pandora, Taste of Country and Sounds Like Nashville and declared “Country Music’s Next Rising Star” by Billboard. He’s toured with Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown, Morgan Wallen, Dan + Shay, Granger Smith, LANCO, Mitchell Tenpenny, Chris Lane and Niko Moon, co-wrote Dustin Lynch’s Top 5 hit song “Momma’s House,” scored two RIAA-certified Gold records, accumulated over 1M social media followers and banked an upwards of 250M on-demand streams (and counting). Signed to BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records, his latest five-track EP College Town truly embraced his irresistible rock-n-roll edge and unrestrained pop-country swagger. Now, after posting a snippet of his new break-up anthem “Ain’t Missin’ You” on social media, the sound went viral, racking up more than 115M TikTok views, 112k user-generated TikTok videos and 26M on-demand streams, before climbing to #3 on TikTok’s Country playlist and securing placement on viral-song charts. Giving into fan demand, the rising country star’s “Ain’t Missin’ You” is out now and currently climbing the country radio charts

ABOUT MEGAN MORONEY:
Country newcomer with massive staying power, Megan Moroney is strong-minded, sensitive, and fiercely devoted to speaking her truth. As a teenager in Georgia, she first honed her gorgeously gritty vocal style by singing covers with her dad and brother, then took up guitar at age 16. Although she started off studying accounting at the University of Georgia, Moroney’s entire trajectory changed after opening for Chase Rice at the famed Georgia Theatre her freshman year — a turn of events that found her penning her first-ever original song and discovering the dazzling specificity and down-to-earth honesty that now define her music. In July 2022 she offered a first glimpse at the full-force personality of her songwriting with the Pistol Made of Roses EP, inspiring CMT to praise her as a “musical risk taker with powerhouse pipes.” As her career gained unstoppable momentum, she next delivered her breakout single “Tennessee Orange”: an immediate smash that soon led to her signing with Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records, in addition to notching her first No. 1 at Country radio and earning RIAA PLATINUM certification. Named a “2023 Artist to Watch” by the likes of Amazon Music, Pandora, and Spotify, as well as an iHeart “On The Verge” Artist and one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2023, Moroney released her debut album LUCKY in May and quickly drew major acclaim for the lived-in intimacy, fearless truth-telling, electrifying impact of her songwriting. With her avalanche of accolades including winning BREAKTHROUGH FEMALE VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the CMT Music Awards, she made her debut appearance on NBC’s TODAY and kicked off her first headline run with the sold-out PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR. After opening for Country legends Brooks & Dunn this summer, Moroney has embarked on her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR for this fall bringing her magnetic live show to iconic venues across the U.S. — all while continuing a meteoric rise that now includes nearly 600 MILLION total global streams to date.

Old Dominion’s Memory Lane Is Here

Old Dominion’s Memory Lane Is Here

18 Songs, Many Moods, Moments + Truths About Good Vibes

With Their EP Yielding Their NINTH No. 1 with “Memory Lane,”

“Can’t Break Up Now” with Megan Moroney Was No. 1 Most Added

LISTEN HERE

Waist deep in their No Bad Vibes 2023 arena tour, Old Dominion finally delivers their 18-song Memory Lane, the eagerly awaited expansion of their January sampler and early summer EP of the same name, today (October 6). Listen HERE.

Beyond already having their ninth No. 1 as the title track, the critically acclaimed band’s smoldering duet with double Country Music Association (CMA) Awards nominee Megan Moroney officially arrived at country radio as No. 1 Most Added upon impact on 9/18.

And that’s only the tip of the music for the five-time and current Country Music Association and six-time and reigning Academy of Country Music Group of the Year. For their fifth full project, lead singer and guitarist Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist/vocalist Brad Tursi, keyboardist/guitarist/accordion man Trevor Rosen and the adventurously multi-rhythmic section of bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers wanted to braid all the things that have defined the band of songwriters together.

As Ramsey explains on the brink of releasing the full project, “There is the self-awareness that we are the ear-worm farmers. We do know we have this ability to just throw in everything that can catch your ear without it sounding too cloudy or chaotic. We’ve really refined that, but that – if we’re paying attention – allows us to go off in directions we want to explore, because the hook will bring you with us.”

Whether the lean, then surging “Freedom Like You,” banjo-flecked, multi-rhythmic  “A Million Things,” innocently retro melody on the lonesome “Both Sides of the Bed,” good time stop/start “Ain’t Got A Worry” featuring Blake Shelton, slinky soul-country of wanting to be the thing that’s “Different About You” or hushed harmony-forward “Beautiful Sky,” Old Dominion sought to push the envelope of where those ear worms could live, breathe and create a gleaming kind of country that empowers even on the bad day.

That joy of living even in complicated times sets the 13-times Platinum band apart. Beyond going deeper, making more reflective songs shine, it’s also about their willingness to make it about the rhythms and the playing. Looking to “Different About You,” Tursi explains, “It’s sort of a nod to the Chili Peppers, but really a nod to Hendrix. That was the most transformed from demo to final recording. It’s really fun to play those double stop parts. Those voicings are built for guitar, and the song became way more aggressive. I always like when we get to go back to being the rock band we were, and always will be.”

“Some songs evolve, changing incrementally,” adds Rosen. “Our sound’s the result of five individuals listening to each other and playing what comes naturally — like a flock of birds. With each song, we have our own mental concept of what the song is at its essence, but obviously with a shared vision. Whatever comes through us, through our instruments, that’s the fusion of our musical DNA.”

Whether the slinky “Hot Again,” the tumbling “Easy To Miss” or the reggae-undertowed “Sleep Without Drinking,” Memory Lane takes Old Dominion’s feel-good country and ups the ante. More adventurous, more coherent, more, well, fun even as it measures the rough patches and disappointments. For the friends who became a band, it’s arriving at a place where Old Dominion is a sound and a state of mind.

“There’s self-awareness musically, and there’s self-awareness as a human,” Ramsey explains. “We didn’t have that much ego (between us) in the first place. It’s disappeared with where we are and acknowledging of our abilities. The joy of creating something and putting it out, seeing how people receive it: there’s a real freedom in that.”

Freedom and awesome. With a string of sold-out arenas behind them – and going forward – the celebration of the full-on Memory Lane could stretch well into 2024. As “Love Drunk and Happy” heaven-bound declaration proclaims, “Lets raise a toast to the wild hearts making the most/ of every single minute ‘til they give up the ghost/ What a way to live, what a way to go…”

KANE BROWN TEAMS UP WITH ASL ARTISTS & D-PAN TO CREATE ONE-OF-A-KIND AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE VIDEOS FOR BROWN’S TOP HITS

KANE BROWN TEAMS UP WITH ASL ARTISTS & D-PAN TO CREATE ONE-OF-A-KIND AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE VIDEOS FOR BROWN’S TOP HITS

Watch The Videos Here

Multi-platinum, 5X AMA award-winning entertainer and current CMA Award nominee Kane Brown joins forces with American Sign Language Artists and D-Pan (Deaf Professional Arts Network) to create ASL videos for some of Brown’s greatest hits. Brown and Amber G Productions partnered with D-PAN (a nonprofit ran by Deaf and hard of hearing people) to edit and caption the videos.

Videos in the ASL series include, current CMA nominated and 2X platinum “Thank God,” 9X platinum, “Heaven,” 7X platinum, “What Ifs,” 3X Platinum “Be Like That,” 2X platinum, “One Thring Right,” 2X platinum, “Good As You,” 2X platinum, “Homesick,” 2X platinum, “Lose It, 1X platinum, ”Memory” and Brown’s latest single, “I Can Feel It”. Watch them all here.

“I want my music to be inclusive of everyone,” says Brown.  “If the Deaf and hard of hearing community embrace and connect with my music through these videos, it would mean the world to me.” 

Amber G comments, “We’ve partnered with a few artists (Metallica, Tove Lo), so we were excited to bring Kane into our Deaf ecosystem (a term coined by Kelly Brick). That term means pushing for economic empowerment of Deaf people. It is my hope that other artists see how to follow in the footsteps of Kane Brown, Metallica, and Tove Lo to ensure their content is inclusive and accessible. Music is more than lyrics. Captions fail to adequately show the emotional connection with artists. Let our hands be music to your eyes.” 

Sean Forbes, Co-Founder of D-PAN states, “As a non-profit organization that has been producing sign language video access to music since 2006, it is a pleasure to work with Amber G Productions to help make Kane Brown’s music accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. As a deaf-led organization, with a sign language-centric production team, it was fun to not only work on this but to be introduced to Kane Brown’s music too. We are fans.” 

ABOUT KANE BROWN

Named “the future of country music” (Billboard), multi-platinum-selling, award-winning singer/songwriter Kane Brown first broke onto the scene with the arrival of his self-titled, 2X Platinum debut album (2016), where he became the first artist ever to lead all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously and topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for 13 weeks and  earned two of the most-streamed country songs of all time (chart-topping singles 9X Platinum “Heaven,” 7X Platinum “What Ifs”). His album Experiment (2018) hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 all genre list-becoming the first country artist in more than 24 years to top the chart with a sophomore album. Brown released his multi-song project Mixtape Vol. 1– which earned Brown an ACM Award nomination for Album of the Year (2021) and an ACM win for “Video of the Year.” 

Named to Time’s 100 most influential people in the world (2021), Brown has ascended from independently built social media notability to an ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee (2023) and has become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays and global entertainers. He has earned ten chart-topping No. 1 singles at Country radio, headlined internationally sold out tours and stadium dates, and garnered a series of milestones that continue to expand the perception of country music and break musical boundaries from being named to the Time100 list (2021) to becoming the first black artist in history to headline and sell out Boston’s historic Fenway Park (2023) to his win ACM Video of the Year (2021) and multiple CMA, ACM, Billboard, AMA, CMT and People’s Choice Award nominations, with The NY Times noting, “Kane Brown didn’t fit the country music mold. So he made his own.”

Megan Moroney’s Big Year: The “Tennessee Orange” Country Star Details The Most Meaningful Moments Of Her “Crazy” Career

Megan Moroney’s Big Year: The “Tennessee Orange” Country Star Details The Most Meaningful Moments Of Her “Crazy” Career

With her second headlining tour underway, Megan Moroney reminisces about her whirlwind breakout year, including an Opry debut and a No. 1 smash.

BY TAYLOR WEATHERBY

Just last summer, Megan Moroney had never even played a show. Fourteen months later, she’s headlining a sold-out tour.

The country singer/songwriter kicked off The Lucky Tour on Sept. 20 in New York City, with 22 dates sprinkled throughout the fall until wrapping in her native Georgia on Dec. 10. Though her first headlining tour was in April, The Lucky Tour is an indication of where her stardom is headed — bigger and busier.

“My whole life is completely different now,” Moroney says. “Everything is happening, and I’m on the road 24/7. Last year, I would put out a song and I’d play shows a couple weeks at a time and then have some time off, but we’re planning so far ahead now. It’s a lot of work, but it’s what I want to do.”

Moroney’s rapidly growing success was first fueled by the lovestruck, college football-themed hit “Tennessee Orange,” but she’s kept the momentum going with her debut album, Lucky. While her country-pop stylings are right in line with the genre’s mainstream stars, Moroney’s witty, strong-willed songwriting and husky voice feel like the makings of a superstar.

Moroney’s staying power has already been proven from what she’s achieved in 2023: “Tennessee Orange” hit No. 1 on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay chart in June, won Moroney her first award in April (CMT Breakthrough Female Video Of The Year), and earned her both New Artist Of The Year and Song Of The Year nominations for the 2023 CMA Awards, to name a few.

But even for a girl who went from never touring to having a No. 1 song in just over a year, Moroney insists that she hasn’t lost sight of her purpose.

“I try to just take things a day at a time. I have random goals, but I try not to put too much pressure on myself for specific goals,” Moroney adds. “It’s how I got to ‘Tennessee Orange’ — if I just keep my head down and keep working hard, good things will happen.”

Before Moroney appears at the GRAMMY Museum for a SPOTLIGHT series event on Oct. 10, hear from the singer about six of her most memorable career milestones she’s reached — so far.

Making Her Grand Ole Opry Debut — February 11, 2023

I was in the studio, we were tracking “Kansas Anymore.” And I look over, and Jamey Johnson walks in. I figured he was maybe recording and just coming to say hi, because our tour with him had ended not too long before that. And he’s like, “Hey, I got somebody on FaceTime.”

He had Deana Carter on the phone, and Deana was like, “How would you like to make your Grand Ole Opry debut?” Obviously I completely freaked out.

Then the day of, I had my family come in. It was just a very overwhelming feeling. I remember during soundcheck, when I stepped into the circle, I just started crying. And I was like, Why am I crying? [Laughs.] Like, I knew it was a really big deal, but I definitely didn’t plan on crying.

And that’s why, when I made my debut, I tried not to talk too much. I was like, “And this is my song.” Because I knew if I talked too much, I would just cry, and I was like, I don’t want to do that at the Opry.

I had played bigger venues before, but there’s just something about playing the Opry the first time where I was so nervous. Right before I get on stage, Vince Gill introduced himself to me, and I was like, Oh, perfect. He’s watching, so don’t screw up!

I played “Hair Salon” and “Tennessee Orange.” It was great. I noticed a lot of people came there just for me — I can always tell, too, because everyone has Tennessee stuff on. And it was very cool to have my family there. And a bunch of my friends also showed up.

I think they said there was a standing ovation, but I was offstage at that point. I didn’t get to see it, but heard about it. [Laughs.]

Winning Her First Award — April 2, 2023

I was terrified. Public speaking is scary to start with, but also being on television, I was so nervous. And I remember my publicist being like, “You know if you do win, you need to at least sort of have an idea of what you’re going to say.” And I was just like, “I’m not going to prepare a speech, I’m not gonna win.”

I just remember walking off stage and I was like, Did I just speak English? I completely blacked out. I had no idea what I said. I called my mom and I was like, “Hopefully I did not embarrass myself.” But obviously, it was very cool to win an award for the music video.

The CMTs were the first award show that I attended as an artist. [At] the CMA Awards in November, I was just a host on the red carpet, interviewing other artists. I fortunately got a ticket to the CMA Awards, but I was like, you know, in the back.

It was just crazy. Shania Twain is sitting near me, Megan Thee Stallion is in front of me — I’m just like, What? I was already like, This is crazy, I don’t need to win. I’m having a great time. I don’t know how to give a speech, I’m not well-spoken. Like, I literally write songs about my boyfriend — now I have to go give a speech? [Laughs.]

It’s just crazy and hard to believe that it’s happening. It feels great, obviously, because I feel like Nashville has been supportive and they see the work that I’m doing and they look at it for what it is and how I wanted it to be received. Making a fan base is one thing, but to also have the support of Nashville, like, “We see what you’re doing, and we’re recognizing it,” it’s really cool.

Releasing Her Debut Album — May 5, 2023

The night album came out was the first night of the Brooks & Dunn tour.

We were in Kansas City and I had my team there, and some of my Columbia [Records] people showed up from New York to surprise me. It was so crazy to finally have it out because it had been on my phone for so long. You spend so many hours and put your heart into these songs, and then it comes out, and you’re like, Okay, now what?

One [reaction] that meant a lot to me was Olivia Rodrigo DMing me and saying that she loves the songs. I had posted her “vampire” song on my story, and I tagged her, and she responded and was like, “Oh my gosh, your songwriting is so inspiring!” That was really cool, definitely a standout moment of my album coming out.

Overall — I also try not to look at negative things — my fans, they’ve been receiving it the way that I hoped they would. Like, no one took “Sleep On My Side” too seriously, and “I’m Not Pretty” is not supposed to be a bitchy song; it’s supposed to be more of a confident anthem.

“Girl In The Mirror,” I’ve been able to see at live shows [that] that one is having the most impact on my fans. And I think it does have the most important message of all the songs on the whole record. Girls bring signs to my shows that say “You made me love the girl in the mirror.” There’s little girls that are, like, 7 years old with shirts that say, “You can’t love the boy more than the girl in the mirror.” It’s hitting all age groups.

I think [with] music, you have to say something, or what’s the point? It doesn’t matter what you’re trying to say, but it needs to do something for people. That song definitely helped me writing it, and I’ve seen it help my fans. One of my favorite moments in the live show is everyone singing it with me — and I don’t ask them to sing it with me. Everyone’s just screaming it. I have songs like that from other artists that I feel that way about, so it’s cool to have fans connect with that song.

Playing CMA Fest With Her Brother — June 11, 2023

Last year, I got to play CMA Fest for the first time, and I played it with my brother because, honestly, he did it for free. [Laughs.] We were on one of the smallest stages, if not the smallest, in the Music City Center. It’s basically the stage that people only showed up because they wanted air conditioning, because it was one of the only indoor stages.

Then this year, when CMA Fest came around again, I got to play the Riverfront Stage and Nissan Stadium, and I invited my brother back. Last year, we were like, “We’re gonna make this tradition, because that was fun.” And then this year, I found out I was playing the stadium, and I was like, “Well, we said it was a tradition. You’ve never played a stadium and neither have I, but we’re going to do this together.” So my brother and I played Nissan Stadium together — we did “I’m Not Pretty” and “Tennessee Orange.”

He was playing guitar and singing harmonies. Him and my dad kind of taught me how to play guitar. So we grew up playing together, but now he’s an attorney, so he has, like, a legit job and can’t just quit to tour with me, even though I would love that.

The whole thing was special. He texted me a couple of days after when he was back home, and he was like, “Did we really just play in a stadium?”

I’ve been used to touring and playing in front of people. So I was definitely nervous, but it was manageable. But for him, I’m like, “You have a normal job. I don’t know how you just went out in front of that many people and just played.”

That’s up there as the most meaningful moments of this year. Just to watch the videos and see my face and his face in Nissan stadium. I’m like, What is this? We used to post videos of us on Instagram together in our living room, and I just never would have thought that we would be in a stadium together.

Earning A No. 1 Song With “Tennessee Orange” — June 20, 2023

When I wrote this song, I was happy with it. I was like, This is different than anything I’ve written because it’s kind of a love song and I’m not good at writing those. But I was [also] like, I wrote this song that I can relate to, but like I don’t even know if people in like, California, or someone that doesn’t care about [college] football are even going to understand..

When the fall came around and it was about to be football season, and an opportunity with Spotify came, we were like, Well, we’ve got this football song. I definitely didn’t write it and was like, This is gonna be the one.

When I announced that it was coming out, which was probably like two weeks before, I started promoting it on TikTok. When I posted the initial video, people were making it a trend to show their significant other and they were like, “I met somebody” [with] cute pictures behind the sound. And I teased the bridge and everyone was making TikToks to that. So it was blowing up before the song actually came out.

The night it went No. 1 was actually the last day of the Brooks & Dunn tour, so it was really just an exciting day in general. We really did not know if it was gonna go No. 1 — I had to mentally prepare myself to not be No. 1, because I didn’t want to upset myself too much. The radio team was honest in the fact that there’s huge songs that we’re competing against.

We really didn’t know for sure until 3 a.m. when it actually was official. I was exhausted because we’d been on this run. So at midnight, I went to sleep, and I was like, “Y’all wake me up at 3 if it goes number one. If I don’t get woken up, I’m just gonna not talk to anyone tomorrow.” [Laughs.]

My team and my band came in my room on the bus with orange wigs on, and they scared the life out of me. Then the next day, we went to Broadway to celebrate. I got to hear an artist singing my song on Broadway for the first time — that was really cool, because I remember moving to Nashville and being like, “Wow, if someone is playing a cover of your song on Broadway, you’ve made it.”

I got on stage with her — I was a little intoxicated. [Laughs.] I posted a TikTok video of it. That was a fun day.

Headlining A Sold-Out Tour — Sept. 20 to December 10, 2023

We’re literally going from New York to California and everywhere in between. The more headlining shows I play, I feel like the crazier and more passionate my fans get. They show up in handmade merch, and they’ll dress like me. So I feel like the fall tour will be even more crazy, because it seems to just be getting crazier.

I love opening because you can make new fans, but when everyone is there for you, it’s definitely a different sense of comfortability. My first headlining show was in Georgia, it was in Statesboro. So my family got to be there too. And “Girl In The Mirror” came out a couple of hours before that, and they sang “Girl In The Mirror” back to me. It was the first time I heard them chanting my name. I was just like, This is absurd.

One part of the show that I think I’ll always have on my headliners is where I play a couple of songs where it’s just me and a guitar. And I like doing that because when I’m writing a song, it’s usually just me and a guitar. So I like to recreate that environment for my fans.

One show that really sticks out is a show that I played recently at the Iowa State Fair. I think there were 6,000 people there for me. They were singing every single song — like, the least-streamed song on the album is “Sad Songs For Sad People,” and they screamed every word of that.

To have that many people who care about my music will always beat every other moment, because [I know] what I’m doing is connecting with people. It makes me want to keep creating the same kind of music that does that for people.
